When I was little, I used to believe that there was a little room for a man underneath every traffic light to turn on the red, yellow or green light.

When I was little, somewhere between four and six, I watched a cartoon which had the line "There's a short circuit at the substation! That's why the traffic lights aren't working!". I didn't know what a short circuit or a substation was, but thought that substations were something that somehow made traffic lights not work. One time, my mother and I were passing some traffic lights and I pointed at something and asked, "What's that?". She replied that it was a substation and I said, "but the traffic lights work fine."

When I was little I thought drinking and driving meant you couldn't drink anything while driving. So when I was little and I saw my mom drinking Pepsi while she was driving the car, I'd get very worried that she'd get arrested or we'd all get killed.

This train station that me and my mother used often when I was a young child had a small shelter, this shelter had a barred door for security, however, when I was little, I thought the train station had a jail cell for people who were had at the station.

I wanted to include a link to a picture of the 'jail cell', however, links are not allowed to prevent advertising.

Kid me thought that only old people were allowed to own and drive Oldsmobile cars. After all, it's right in the name, isn't it?

Until I was 11 I used to think that travelling on the train under the English Channel would be like in an aquarium where you would be able to see fish swimming casually around you.

top belief!

We used to have a really small old car. As a lot of other cars were much bigger I used to think that our car was just a baby car and other cars were adult cars.
This made me think that cars could grow and petrol was their food. I believed that if we kept feeding our car petrol it would become bigger and faster like "adult" cars

I used to think that aeroplanes were called "arrowplanes" because they were shaped like an arrow.
